Coffee Lake Pictures

This is how the Coffee Lake NUCs will look like. No big surprises there.

The NUC8i3BEH, NUC8i5BEH and NUC8i7BEH will look have a slot for 2.5″ drive and a slightly higher case. There’s a larger grill on the left side surrounding the SD card reader. This is likely due to the fact that the 28 W TDP CPUs require better cooling than the 15 W CPUs used previously.

The more compact NUC8i3BEK and NUC8i5BEK will only have an M.2 slot for storage and a more compact case.

The availability of these NUCs seems to get pushed back week by week. Now the dealers are saying beginning of August…

    The orange USB Port looks so ugly… Any picture from the back side? Hope to buy one soon!

    Seeing the images seems the new NUCs have lost the “ring” and now there is a simpe LED indicator next to the storage icon to the left of front USBs.

    Is the M.2 slot missing from the higher cases or is the 2.5″ port added to the set up

    • Olli says:

      No it’s not. Both the higher and the compact models share the same mainboard. So the compact cases also have connectors for 2.5″ SATA drives, but there’s no space inside the chassis for one.

    Will it be possibe to power them via USB C ?

  5. The grate on the side gives them a more industrial feel. I agree about the led ring. Once the wow factor wore off,it pretty much just stayed the same color on mine.

    Can’t wait to upgrade my old NUC5i7RYH , i think i am going to take the i5 as it is not that different than i7 both 4 cores 8 threads to keep away from over heat

    • joshua rosenberg says:

      I also worry about heat from the power increase from previous models. I hope the increased height is due to additional heatsinks or a larger fan.

    Was hoping for an rgb ring 🙁

    I for one am waiting on the NUC7 to go on fire sale when the NUC8 hit the shelves.

    Get the NUC7i5 as the real world difference in speed between it and the i7 is minimal. If you do light gaming with the NUC, the gaming difference is practically undetectable. I have both, the 7i5 is a much better deal at roughly $80-100 less.

    And I heartily second the comment that the extra height had better be 100% due to an upgraded cooling system. Both the 7i5 and 7i7 tax the cooling system to its limits when gaming and that’s only with 2 cores + iGPU.

    • Vlado says:

      I don’t think there is an increase in height compared to NUC 7. I think what is said is that BEH models are higher than BEK models. But from the specs documentation linked above in the comments it looks like the fan has wider diameter and the heatsink is wider but not taller.

    Are we certain that this wouldn’t support x3 3840×2160 @60Hz monitors?
    I don’t see why you wouldn’t be able to run 2 full 60Hz monitors off of the 40Gbps Thunderbolt port alone with the HDMI 2.0a port handling it’s own 4k@60Hz monitor.
    I guess you would have to account for utilizing a TB-x2 HDMI 2.0a adapter, which exist and are readily available, but from a bandwidth perspective, you shouldn’t have a problem.

    I would like to buy NUC8i7BEH model but I need 2nd NIC port: do you think will be possible to add a ethernet 1Gbps port with some add-on?

  12. Lassen says:

    Looking into another NUC build soon. Have my eyes on NUC8i5BEK using a still new in the box Samsung XP 941 128GB M2.
    Will this still work/fit?
    Thanks!
